I'm looking for a program to securely erase a hard drive
Posted on 2008-10-31
I'm cleaning up the computer room and getting rid of old pc's laying around. I've removed the hd's from them and want to securely erase them before getting rid of them. I have a laptop with a usb device that allows me to connect an hd externally as a second drive while running off of the laptops hd.
I've found a few programs that will let me erase hd's after booting from a floppy or cd but they would erase the laptops hd as well! I can simply select the hd and format it but that isn't secure. Are there any programs that would let me securely erase only the hd I select, preferably while running from the laptops hd?
